Microsoft is ripping people off with this new update schedule

22

Products with 2 year lifespans like visual studio and windows server have moved to a 1 year update schedule. Yet they still charge you for the update? and the update is minor, practically service pack level stuff.

WTF? Microsoft expects me to buy Windows Server 2012 r2 at full price 1 year after the original came out? And the same is true for Visual studio 2013. The updates aren't even major! Back in the day, they would just roll the update into a service pack!
